Two Years in Ark - A Brief Retrospective

Two Years in Ark - A Brief Retrospective

https://preview.redd.it/s6uu8g27ul331.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=115d0f1152d66546ee5aa61e1acd23c4c8dfb7b8

It was two years ago, June 11, 2017 at 2:40:26 AM EST, when delegate arkmoon officially registered on the ARK mainnet.
It had been roughly 4 years since I'd even looked at anything crypto-related, considering the fall of Mt. Gox had shaken investors to the core. Back then, crypto was still mostly the Wild West. You could only get Bitcoin through sites like Virwox after losing 20-40% in fees as you transferred from PayPay to Second Life Linden to Bitcoin... or shady sites where you had to use Dwolla or mail someone a money order and pray they didn't rip you off... or try your luck mining some of the new Bitcoin forks (e.g. Vertcoin, etc.) but odds are you weren't going to break even for at least 6 months, and I was too poor to buy and hodl long term.
When I heard "bitcoin" mentioned on a mainstream radio station in May, 2017, I scrambled to dig out old hard drives, CD-R's, laptops. Anything I might have had an old wallet on, but alas, I had sold it all in 2013 at a loss (anything that hadn't been stolen already).
Ethereum. "Hmm, that's new," I thought. And so, down the rabbit hole I fell, trying to decide now what to invest in. Bitcoin, yes, and some Ethereum. Ok, but the blockchains for these took days and weeks to download before I could even use them. There were new exchanges, such as Kraken and Bittrex. The fees were lower, and so I got started.
Then, one night in June, I found ARK. I'm not sure exactly how. Going through the list of coins available, ARK stood out in the fact that you didn't need to download an entire blockchain to start using it. You just downloaded the desktop wallet, and you had coins transferred in 8 seconds. So easy, it was something your grandma could do.
And then I continued to read about it. What it was built on, and how it worked. "Delegated Proof of Stake", definitely more affordable and environmentally friendly than running GPUs and ASICs with thousands of watts for mining POW coins.
"ARK, then."
I registered arkmoon delegate in an effort to solve a problem. Back in June, 2017, Ark delegates had a problem with pool hoppers. Delegates would schedule manual payouts either once per day or once per week. And right before a payout would happen, these pool hoppers would jump in and vote, essentially stealing potential rewards from loyal voters.
My initial delegate proposal was simple. Vote for me; I want to create a system that credits voters at the block-level, so they earn only if are voting for you, and you'll never have to worry about blacklisting pool hoppers again. I got virtually no support, which was frustrating. It got to the point where I simply removed myself from Ark from about June till September since no one had been voting for me. I'd like to take a second here to give a shoutout to delegate jarunik, who offered words of encouragement during this stressful time. Eventually, in October, 2017, a mysterious benefactor with over a million Ark decided to give me a chance by voting for me. Eventually, they slowly backed away while I gained my own voters organically through my dedication and higher share rate. For this chance, I am eternally grateful.
Around this time, the first biz delegate was created from 4chan, fat-fingered his payout and was begging for my solution. biz or the person behind it lasted a week, then was voted out in favor of the much more responsible GoldenPepe and his team biz_classic, who were able to release the first block-level payout script that was eventually adopted by (most) delegates. I say most, because there were several who never adopted it, and suffered as a consequence.
As time went on, we had our fair share of scammers; people who would write decent proposals, and would run off with their forging rewards. Delegates who had zero technical skill who doubled forged on the network. We've had a delegate publish their private passphrase on the blockchain. But all-in-all, things continued forward, and dedicated delegates appeared to mostly where we are today.
Then, we hit the big bull run in December, 2017 and everything was peachy. I had only been a delegate for less than 2 months, and really didn't have anything accumulated, but 2018 looked promising, so I kept working hard on building e-commerce and tax assistance sites to support the Ecosystem. As we all know now, we've been full bear mode for the past two years, but I have stuck with Ark in spite of it all simply due to the dedication I've consistently seen from the core Ark team and its delegates.
The Ark team has been consistently improving the stability and security of the blockchain, even as the price has fallen as low as it's been. Delegates such as alessio are dedicated solely on making sure the blockchain is secure, and delegates such as goose and I have been trying to develop useful tools to help both delegates and potential ARK users alike. We have cams_yellow_jacket producing professional videos, and thegoldenhorde continually impressing the community with their merch and awesome designs. Delegate arkland has amazing raffles. I can honestly say that I am proud to be part of this community.
Now, with the Ark Deployer, we are starting to see new people pop up in the Slack channels, asking how they can start up their own blockchains. The first person to start up their own chain is an accountant by profession, with little server-side experience and was able to get an Ark sidechain running in less than 24 hours. The true Ark Ecosystem is starting to form, and I am hopeful for the future.
I'd like to just take a moment to thank all my voters, and to all of you in the Ark Ecosystem for your continued support. I don't know what the future holds for us, but I am thankful for how far we've come.

Moronic Monday - It's your weekly stupid questions thread. Please upvote for visibility. I receive no karma for this post.

Hey /SilkRoad , it is time for Moronic Monday!
Post your question - stupid or otherwise - here to get an answer. Anyone can post a question and the community as a whole is invited and encouraged to provide an answer. Many questions get submitted late each week that don't get a lot of action, so if your question didn't get answered before, feel free to post it again.
I do ask that you refrain from abusing noobs in this thread. Feel free to link to guides, wikis, forums, other subreddits (particularly /bitcoin and /drugs [though many on the Bitcoin subreddit don't take real kindly to SR]), or the FAQ, though.
Link semi-related:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aeukmFc3sU
Also, I wanted to mention that scam attempts are ongoing in this subreddit. It's mostly the same guy, probably from China (based on the domain registrar) posting links to a fake Bitcoin exchange with a similar name to a legitimate bitcoin ecommerce site. The site claims to accept Paypal and debit/credit cards for Bitcoin, which no legitimate Bitcoin exchange does directly. He's using a rotating array of obscure URL shorteners to evade the automatic sitewide spam algorithm. His usernames are usually, but not always, gibberish, and usually, but not always, only used to post one comment or link. Some of you report it when you see it, and I'm thankful for that. Downvotes don't put things in the moderation queue, so please always report it when you see it. I delete and ban it when I see it and I know other mods do as well. There are other scams, but that's by far and away the most common one.
Another thing I want to mention is that you should never use onion.to for SR-related tasks. You lose all anonymity by going that route. Your ISP and/or your university IT department can tell exactly what you're looking at if you use it. Even if you visit onion.to using Tor, malicious Tor exist nodes could be used to compromise your anonymity. The Tor Browser Bundle is a seriously easy thing to install and use, and Orweb/Orbot is not much worse.

Fuck Virwox For Buying Bitcoin!

So I had 784 AUD to turn into BTC, which is 1.3 BTC, but by the time Virwox.com was done with the conversions, I came up with 1.06! THAT'S LIKE $182 IN FUCKING FEES!
Fuck Virwox. Don't ever buy Bitcoins from this virtual exchange, ever. Complete rip off.

Poor experience with VirWox

So, here was me thinking I would use a website to buy Bitcoin to use to buy Dogecoin. I used VirWox as other Shibe said it was good.
This Shibe lost money, please benefit muchly from my experience.
So I deposit $USD
-Lose money from conversion from AUD to USD
-Lose money in PayPal fees (they take them out of your deposit)
To buy BIT I first have to buy LLD
-Can't convert ALL USD to LLD, so have money left over
Then need to convert LLD to BIT
-Can't convert ALL LLD, so have this left over also
And each and every step in the way they charge you a fee + %
Never again! I'd rather just wait to find someone willing to sell Doge rather than pay someone to use their computer for the transaction.

My Coins are in a "Imported Bitcoin Addresses" at blockchain, but if I try to import them to my wallet, it's only the original transfer, not today's value

How did I do this? I don't know. In Jan of 2015, I started spending a small amount of bit coin. However, I found out about blockchain and I transferred it to there.. I thought. It shows in the account as a "imported". Does this mean I set it up originally on another wallet? I'm not familiar with any others, but apparently I did if I transferred it...from somewhere.
Now, if I try to spend it (its the original $88 I had, not the new high price of $540 or something close to that).
I used the virwox.com to get it from USD cash to SL to Bitcoin.
I have, I "think" a key for the wallet that I backed up when I made the account, it's in a json file, but I can open it in text to see it.
My question, how can I get my $500? Do I need to go back to the original place I moved it from... if thats what I did... confused.

Trading DOGE: Your full guide to trading Dogecoin for profit

NOTE: YES! This guide is long, but when you get started it's fast and easy.
Hi everyone,
my previous post about PTC's got so much hate. So I decided to make a full guide on how I made $120 last month. If the same interest and numbers remain you'll be making $100/month for two months, and $500/month for another month. On your third month, you'll be able to make over $750 if the market remains. These last couple of days I've just bought low sold high to people. The steps are really simple and anyone can do it, I'll show you all the steps in detail for maximum profits.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for your money or actions. Any accusations to me (Rynsi) will not be accepted, use it on your own risk!

2. Get started with Dogecoin
2.1 Install your wallet
3. Choose trading sources
3.1 USD/BTC
3.2 BTC/DOGE
4. Where to sell Dogecoin?
5. Good advise
6. Summary
7. Proof of Screenshots for the naysayers
8. Links
1. Introduction
I started trading Dogecoin (I'll talk about this coin soon) 5th of February, and saw a great potential in making money with it. With this guide, you'll make 15%-30% of your money back with each trade because the current market is limited, therfor YOU can provite this service that many people request. I started with $72 and now have $220, which makes my ROI 205.5%. I will show you how it's made step by step before it blows up and become viral!
2. Get started with Dogecoin
You can use it to buy goods and services, or trade it for other currencies (both other cryptocurrencies or traditional currency like US dollars). By far the most popular use the Dogecoin however is for "tipping" fellow internet-goers who are creating or sharing great content. Think of it as a more meaningful "like" or upvote, with real value that can be used all across the internet.
2.1 Install your wallet
To start using Dogecoin, you'll need a wallet. A wallet is just like your online bank account, only your entire account is stored securely on your local computer or in the cloud. From your wallet you can send and receive Dogecoin, manage your address book and review a history of your transactions.
Desktop wallets can be downloaded and run from your computer's desktop. Desktop wallets are more secure as they don't rely on a third-party server in the cloud:
Windows (click to download)
OS X (click to download)
Source code(if you're using Linux, you'll need to compile the wallet yourself)
For Windows and OS X users, simply extract the .zip file to a secure location on your computer, then double click on "dogecoin-qt" to run. For information on how to use your desktop wallet, check out this great site.
3. Choose trading sources
You know now how to get a Dogecoin wallet, but you will need to get an online wallet to save USD on, one exchange site to trade USD to BTC and one to trade BTC to DOGE. It might sound a lot to do in the startup phase, but it's really easy once you get going!
3.1 USD/BTC Exchange
There are a lot of options when it comes to buying BTC, but for now VirWox is the only one that accepts PayPal and VISA purchases. You can choose many different kinds of sites that accept USD/BTC trades, that is another story that is another story to be told. VirWox has a limit of depositing $780 per month, but after 60 days you can deposit $2800 per month, so trading as much as possible will be the best thing to do if you want money.
USD Storage: PayPal
USD/BTC Exchange: VirWox (ref / non-ref)
To deposit dollars with (VERIFIED) PayPal to VirWox, you need to be a verified user. This is to prevent frautend actions such as chargebacks and instant payments. The deposit will be instantly made after you complete the order and you can start trade. To trade, you first have to buy SLL with the USD on your account [!!!WARNING!!!] USE LIMIT ORDER and NOT market order.
Now do the same, but with the SLL/BTC exchange. I repeat, do NOT use the market order. Use LIMIT ORDER to get as much BTC as possible.
You have now successfully completed a USD/BTC exchange!
3.2 BTC/DOGE Exchange
This step is almost similar to the previous Exchange, but this step is only with Crypto-currency (read Bitcoin and Dogecoin).
BTC/USD Exchange: Cryptsy (ref / non-ref)
To exchange to BTC, you need to withdraw your BTC from VirWox to Cryptsy. This is made in the Cryptsy balance page, where you can generate a BTC deposit adress. Unfortunately, you have to wait 48 hours the first time for VirWox to accept your deposit manually due to security reasons, all the other transactions in this guide will be almost instant.
Now when you have BTC on your Cryptsy account, you have to do the same as you did with USD/SLL and SLL/BTC, really easy! When you have traded to DOGE, your downloaded Desktop Wallet comes in handy. Deposit the DOGE from Cryptsy to your Desktop Wallet and you're ready to go to the next step!
4. Where to sell Dogecoin?
This is a great surprise I have waited to tell you, you use REDDIT to sell Dogecoin! It's really easy to do. Go to /dogemarket/new and see what the current prices are. You can sell for the same price as others, undercut for faster sales or overcut for slower sales (but bigger profits!). You structure the post by [SERVICE] AMOUNT RATE PAYMENT TYPE (SPECIAL OFFER). Here is an example, my last post where I sold Dogecoin. If you follow my conversation in that post you will see how typical trades are being made.
When you have traded the Doge you can make a post on the /dogemarket verification thread where you achieve levels that will be shown for other users through your flare. Notice the orage flares, those indicate level of trades, age and amount you have traded. These are good for noticing legit and fake users, but always be of scammers!
5. Good advise
A. Only accept GIFT (friends and family option) from (VERIFIED) PayPal, DO NOT accept eChecks or transactions that has to be accepted first. eChecks and Instant payments can be chargebacked and gifts will prevent this from being possible.
B. If you have reached VirWox deposit limit, wait a while to see how the BTC/DOGE market is going. You might make some extra 1000's of DOGE if you wait a while.
C. Always be nice and kind to the DOGE community, they are really friendly, patient and polite, be so too!
D. Try to be fast in your transactions on /dogemarket, good service equals good reviews.
E. PEOPLE WILL TRY TO SCAM YOU! Always check for names including "shibe" or "doge" and new accounts.
F. Have fun! If you have fun trading and communicating with other people on Reddit, you will enjoy yourself and have a better time making money.
6. Summary: A step by step guide to make $100+/month
(and $500+/month after 60 days if market remains)
Download your dogecoin wallet.
Sign up to PayPal, VirWox and Cryptsy.
Add money to your (VERIFIED) PayPal account.
Deposit the money to VirWox.
Exchange money to SLL.
Exchange SLL to BTC.
Withdraw BTC to Cryptsy.
Exchange BTC to DOGE.
Withdraw DOGE to Desktop Wallet.
Make a post on /dogemarket.
Recieve PayPal money from buyer.
Send Dogecoin to buyer.

This is my first guide: making over $100/month with a $72 investment. When your VirWox account is 60 days you'll make $500/month and when your VirWox account is 90 days you'll make $750/month (if market remains as it is).
I think it's a big effort by me trying to teach you how to make money, so I would really appreciate you using the referral links. If you find any errors in my guide, please don't hesitate to tell. I will be answering any questions regarding my guide as good as possible doesn't matter if you comment or PM.

Invest in Crypto Now Through LocalBitcoins or Wait?

I've been having trouble finding an exchange that works for me to buy cryptocurrency. I live in Australia so my options are limited but I really want to get into investing in this space. BTC Markets allows POLi transfers but not for ANZ bank accounts and I'm having trouble verifying my credit cards on Coin Base.
What I want to ask is if people think I should try to get some Bitcoin from LocalBitcoins or VirWoX at a much higher price, then exchange to other altcoins. I'm looking for the long term hold so I'm guessing this extra cost won't matter too much. Or should I keep trying for the next couple weeks to work with Coin Base to get my problems sorted.
The bottom line is, do I get into the market early and pay a premium or wait and hope it works well for me?

Minor Wanting Bitcoin

Im 17, interested in investing, and willing to buy bitcoin for under 3% markup. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find anywhere that allows "underage people" to buy bitcoin for the aforementioned price range. Could anyone help? I've tried virwox and ATMS but I feel like these services just take advantage of those who desperately want bitcoin but cannot take part in services because of being underage or in fear of breaking anonymity. Thanks in advance!

Why aren't most of the top e juice vendors accepting bitcoin?

I know there is a huge wiki list of vendors that accepts BTC here: https://www.reddit.com/electronic_cigarette/comments/3niphd/the_big_list_of_bitcoin_accepting_vape_vendors/
But the list is a bit outdated, several of those top vendors no longer accept bitcoin. BX- Vapors, Blue Dot, 63 maui etc are the ones i would like to see add BTC as a payment option.
Unlike most I am unbanked and rarely use prepaid credit/ debit cards. Bitcoin is just an easier option for me: 1. I have a few spare BTC laying around and with the recent price surge a small amount of BTC goes a long way again 2. It is easier for me to convert Cash to Paypal to BTC via virwox. 3. Fast, secure, irreversible transactions are also a plus.
I understand some have concerns over the price volatility, but there are services such as Bitpay that allow vendors to convert BTC to cash instantly without having to hold on to it.
Shout outs to Gordona vapes who had an amazing 40% off deal this Thanksgiving and i got the chance to use some of my left over BTC to pick up some Groolberry Cheesecake ( which is awesome by the way). Also to Mt. Baker Vapor, they also accept BTC, so far these are my two go to vendors from now on for the simple fact that the accept it. ALL OTHER VENDORS STEP UP AND KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES PLEASE!

Why is buying BTC in the US so hard?!

-cashintocoins has been severely lagging since there's much more money being requested than there is in stock -i don't have a credit card and will never have a credit card so i can't do instant buy from Coinbase, and i'm not gonna wait 4 days if they're gonna lock in the price instead of just letting me transfer money and THEN buy the coins after those 4 days, and have the amount of bitcoins that i'm actually paying for at the moment i buy them -i'm never gonna use localbitcoins, prices are waaayyy too high -i don't have a utility bill so no mtgox -bitstamp is taking forever to verify me -okpay won't let me get verified since i'm from the US -24change seems sketch because liqpay seems sketch and i hear a lot of US transactions don't go through -virwox has a tiny maximum limit and i'm not even sure if they do US credit/debit cards -campbx hasn't rolled out bank transfers yet -coinmkt hasn't either SO WHAT THE HECK CAN I USE???

A guide to using Silk Road, specifically for /r/UKtrees

Hey all, I’ve seen a few posts on here asking about using Silk Road to purchase trees. I’m not an expert, but I have used it successfully a few times now, so I figured I’d write a guide to help anyone out.
1. Getting on Silk Road.
Silk Road exists on what is commonly referred to as the ‘Hidden internet’, or ‘Deep Web’; Websites on the hidden internet are not indexed and thus not accessible by regular search engines or DNS lookups. You can do more research on this if you want - to be perfectly honest, I don’t understand it entirely - but you don’t need to.
To access Silk Road and the rest of the Hidden Internet, you need to download a piece of Software, called Tor. This software allows you access hidden websites via a regular browser window. Just head to Tor’s Website and click the download. Once the files are downloaded, unzip and click Start Tor.
To head to Silk Road, enter the following address silkroadvb5piz3r.onion
You’ll need to make an account, this is pretty straight forward. (Make sure you remember your pin. You don’t need it when logging in, but you do need it when confirming transactions. Also, your pin doesn’t actually have to be a ‘pin’, mine is just another regular password)
Note: Due to the nature of the Onion network/service, it’s quite slow. And a busy site like Silk Road can be even slower. So, it may be that you have trouble connecting. If it doesn’t work, hit refresh a couple of times, and then just try again later. I usually have better luck in the morning 9pm-12pm and late evening 10pm-4am
2. Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is a decentralised peer 2 peer based currency. Essentially, it’s an untraceable and anonymous currency. Purchasing Bitcoin can be a little tricky, there are a number of ways to do it.
There are exchanges such as MTgox and Intersango, and many direct Bitcoin purchasing sites such as Bitstamp, and BitInstant. The problem with many of these sites is they operate outside of the UK, and as such getting money into them can be tricky. They tend not to accept debit credit cards, and often require bank transfers via IBAN. However, banks will often charge you a fee for using IBAN (I know Natwest charges £10).
These websites will allow you to deposit money into your account, and then place orders to convert that money into Bitcoin.
Other easier websites are Virwox, and Block Chain.
With Virwox, you first need to convert currency into Linden Dollars (SLL) (a currency used in the game Second Life) then into Bitcoins. However, Virwox does not allow for fractions of bitcoins, which means you can easily end up being just shy of a full bitcoin and having ‘worthless’ SLL. One nice thing about Virwox is that they accept UKash vouchers. So if you want no trace of your purchases, you can go buy UKash vouchers at any Paypoint and then deposit those.
Block Chain used to only be depositable via Barclay’s Pingit, but has since opened up regular bank transfers, I found this worked really well the last time I used it, so I’d recommend it.
You can also buy bitcoins in person by searching on Local bitcoin. In addition, there are also people selling Bitcoins on Ebay, but very overpriced, so I wouldn’t recommend that.
There are a tonne of places to buy bitcoin, some accept cash/cheques in the mail as well. You can always find more by googling.
3. The purchasing process.
You need to send your purchased Bitcoins to your SR account, you can find your bitcoin address under ‘Account’ at the top of the screen. It can take a few hours for the transfer to take place.
Once in your account, you’re ready to purchase, simply find whatever it is you wish to buy, click add to cart, and then head to the checkout. Select a postage method for your items and click go to confirm the postage.
Now, you need to input your address and your pin.
Now, you might have heard of PGP encryption by this point, it’s a form of public/private key encryption used on SR to protect the addresses of its users.
For this, I’m just going to steal mr_kyitty’s guide from this thread.
  1. Get gpg4win, install, and open 'GPA'
  2. Now you need to make your own key. Go to Keys>New Key, and follow the prompts. Use a fake name/e-mail. Before entering a passcode, write it out (the longer the passcode, the better, and you have to enter it every time you encrypt something). Once that's done, you have your own key.
  3. Import the seller key from the seller page. To do this, copy the public key from the page, paste it into a blank notepad file, and save the file. Then click 'Import' in GPA and load that file. You now have that seller's public key.
  4. To encrypt your address, open the clipboard in GPA and type in your address. Click encrypt, select the seller's public key, and in the lower box, check "sign" and select your own key. Then you will be prompted to enter your passcode. Once complete, copy the block from the clipboard and paste it into the address box on the shopping cart page.
I’d like to add, that you don’t need to ‘sign’ the encryption. What this does is allows the seller to verify that you are the actual sender of the message. However, I’d argue this isn’t entirely necessary, as it will also require you to post your public key somewhere.
Click to confirm the transaction, and that’s the order placed.
It will now show up under your ‘orders’ section. You’ll notice an option to ‘finalize’.
Silk Road uses escrow, i.e. they hold your money when you place an order, and when the order is confirmed to have gone through (after x days) the money will be sent to the vendor. You can Finalise early, by clicking the finalise button and sending them their payment. It’s common courtesy to do this once your item has arrived. If an issue arises, you can click resolve, and attempt to claim a refund/resolve the issue. I don’t have any experience with this so I’d recommend you search /silkroad for advice if you need assistance on resolving a matter.
Some vendors might ask you to finalise early before they will send your order. Now, this is actually against Silk Road policy, but its common for vendors to ask for this from first time buyers. Personally, I would say just don’t do it. You never know what’s going to happen. But generally speaking, a vendor's reputation is probably worth more than your particular order, so the risk of being 'ripped off' is low.
Still, I wouldn't recommend it.
4. Additional Comments
Do I recommend it for weed?
I started using SR Last year after I moved back home from Uni, because I no longer had a dealer. Personally, if I had a choice, I would choose to buy from a dealer every time. SR is a lot of hassle, so I wouldn’t recommend it for your general Eighth or quarter, unless you have no other connection (as is unfortunately the situation for me).
However, there are a variety of strains and products available, ranging from hashes to oils to edibles, so some of you might like to have those options.
In terms of price, I’d say it’s fair. A lot of Weed vendors will have a standard strain that they’ll sell for a (roughly) standard £20/eighth. You will generally be spending a little more given the nature of the process.
Is it risky?
In terms of general legal risk, you can't control what people send to you. If there's no record of you having bought it (Which there isn't, buying bitcoins is not a crime) then you should be fine. In terms of 'Will I get scammed risk' - it's just like ebay, people value their reputation. Buy from high repped vendors, and you should be fine.
Anyway, that’s all folks, I hope you’ve found this helpful. If you have any questions, leave a comment, and I’ll do my best to help you out.
Also, if any other more experienced SR users have noticed any mistakes or things I should alter in this guide, please leave a comment and let me know, and I’ll make the necessary amendments.
And here are some other great subreddits which you may also find useful.

Today marks my 1 year anniversary into Bitcoin :)

Dec 17th I made my first purchase of BTC. I did it at Virwox with paypal, bought SL then exchanged them for BTC. Then I printed out a few paper wallets offline and stored this new treasure of mine. (I'm still using those same paper wallets, the private keys have never seen the internet and I'm convinced is the best and easiest way for cold storage.) My wife laughed. I found better ways to buy (coinbase) and kept buying more every month. A few months later she got angry because everything was bitcoin this, bitcoin that. More recently, she will forward me news articles and say "did you hear Microsoft now accepts bitcoin?".
I truly believe Bitcoin will be revolutionary. I started with the price near the peak and I've ridden it all the way down. Cheers to you all who have done the same and hoping for a strong 2015.

FUCK CREDIT CARDS, SERIOUSLY

When Bitcoin went down to ~$350 I said to myself "The prices... are too damn low!", so I went to Virwox to buy some more and surprise, surprise, something went wrong with my stupid fiat and my credit card got blocked. I tried calling them but, you know, fiat drones only work on certain days and hours so I got no answer. Today I tried again to buy and it worked for no reason. I guess that's what fiat does, it just makes you lose money and slows you down. I can't wait to close my bank account and credit cards and in the reason write "Bitcoin". To the moooon!

I Finally Got Some Bitcoin Easily using VirWox.com (at a %37 Transaction Fee)

So I just used VirWox.com, and I should be getting 0.025 Bitcoin as soon as the withdrawal is done! It was fairly easy, however the $19 of Bitcoin at current prices cost me $30 when all was said and done. Had to pay to deposit, pay to transfer USD to Linden Dollars, pay to transfer Linden to BTC, pay to withdraw BTC, and left small amounts of money behind on every step due to VirWox transaction resolutions. A 37% transaction fee is pretty shitty. It would be reduced at higher amounts, but you cannot do large amounts until months after creating a virwox account.
I tried for a week solid to get some Bitcoin back in the April dip after the excitement and had every single attempt fail. At least I finally have some. I just find the whole technology side really interesting and wanted to have some skin in the game.

Good time to buy?

Hi, im thinking of buying my first coins soon and was wondering, whens a good time to buy? I dont have much money so to me every cent counts which is why i was thinking of waiting until Bitcoin drops in price.
Also im buying my partial Bitcoins through Virwox. Then i was thinking of moving those coins onto my Bitcoin Electrum wallet because i dont want to download the blockchain and im not sure i can withdraw those coins from virwox to an exchange. I would then transfer them to my Cryptsy adress, convert to Blackcoin then withdraw to my Blackcoin adress. Is this a good way to do it? Like i said this is my first time buying coins so sorry if this looks like a silly way to go about it.

Hey, I'm a 15 year old looking into buying Bitcoins

Around my school I have heard of kids mining bitcoins early making thousands of dollars and one friend even invested into 3 and a half bitcoins at the price of 30 dollars and now selling them at 900. I was wondering if there is any advice I should take in buying for the long run not only for the investing, but in hope of many providers offering bitcoin as an option in the future. I currently do not have a bank account and was wondering how else I could buy some. I have around 1 grand cash on hand from working around the neighborhood and running an online minecraft server. I found that one could use paypal to buy bitcoins but the commission on them was terrible for the 50 dollars I invested and only received 42 dollars in actually worth of bitcoins at the moment on http://www.virwox.com/, so this way does not seem perfect for me. Connected a bank account seems like a last resort because my parents do not seem to trust connecting a bank account. Risking larges sums of money and they do not quite grasp the concept bitcoin has, although my dad wants to learn. Overall any information would help! Thanks in advance.

New to Bitcoin, feeling jaded. (bit of a rant)

Thought i'd share my perspective as someone who has just now started using bitcoin.
Not a day has gone by in the last year or so that i haven't seen something about bitcoin. Certainly the praises are high. So when i saw something i'd like to buy listed in bitcoin i decided to pull the trigger and buy in.
I was surprised to see my options for using my credit card did not appear to be very numerous.
After some reading people suggested to use virwox as they are supposed to be fast. I sign up deposit $50 into virwox which ends up as 47.xx after fees only to discover i can only buy SSL or second life money (that's a thing?) to transfer that into bitcoin. Convert the 47.xx to SSL..there'll be a fee for that. SSL to BTC? fee there too, withdraw your btc? you guessed it another fee. At this point i'm out over $5..that's over 10% in fees!
Whatever let me just transfer to my wallet and buy my item and i'll be done with it. Oh..you have a new account? there will be a 48 hour hold until we transfer to your wallet.
Now the price of my item is set in USD ($43) and obviously the price of bitcoin is ever changing. Now i'm just hoping i'll still have enough BTC to buy it by the time my funds are released to my wallet.
Obviously i went about transferring my money the wrong way. I know bitcoin is just starting out and everything. I want to trade in bitcoin to support it....but you guys are not making it easy. I can't begin to imagine what it would be like for the average non technical user.
tldr; too many fees, virwox sucks, must be impossible for someone non technical to get into btc.

Trading DOGE: Your full guide to trading Dogecoin for profit!

NOTE: YES! This guide is long, but when you get started it's fast and easy.
Hi everyone,
my previous post about PTC's got so much hate. So I decided to make a full guide on how I made $120 last month. If the same interest and numbers remain you'll be making $100/month for two months, and $500/month for another month. On your third month, you'll be able to make over $750 if the market remains. These last couple of days I've just bought low sold high to people. The steps are really simple and anyone above 18 can do it, I'll show you all the steps in detail for maximum profits.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for your money or actions. Any accusations to me (Rynsi) will not be accepted, use it on your own risk!

3. Choose trading sources
3.1 USD/BTC
3.2 BTC/DOGE
4. Where to sell Dogecoin?

1. Introduction
I started trading Dogecoin (I'll talk about this coin soon) 5th of February, and saw a great potential in making money with it. With this guide, you'll make 15%-30% of your money back with each trade because the current market is limited, therfor YOU can provite this service that many people request. I started with $72 and now have $220, which makes my ROI 205.5%. I will show you how it's made step by step before it blows up and become viral!
2. Get started with Dogecoin
You can use it to buy goods and services, or trade it for other currencies (both other cryptocurrencies or traditional currency like US dollars). By far the most popular use the Dogecoin however is for "tipping" fellow internet-goers who are creating or sharing great content. Think of it as a more meaningful "like" or upvote, with real value that can be used all across the internet.
2.1 Install your wallet
To start using Dogecoin, you'll need a wallet. A wallet is just like your online bank account, only your entire account is stored securely on your local computer or in the cloud. From your wallet you can send and receive Dogecoin, manage your address book and review a history of your transactions.
[Here are many good links that let you pick the right Dogecoin Wallet of your needs.

](http://dogecoin.com/get-started)

3. Choose trading sources
You know now how to get a Dogecoin wallet, but you will need to get an online wallet to save USD on, one exchange site to trade USD to BTC and one to trade BTC to DOGE. It might sound a lot to do in the startup phase, but it's really easy once you get going!
USD Storage: PayPal
USD/BTC Exchange: VirWox
3.1 USD/BTC Exchange
There are a lot of options when it comes to buying BTC, but for now VirWox is the only one that accepts PayPal and VISA purchases. You can choose many different kinds of sites that accept USD/BTC trades, that is another story to be told. VirWox has a limit of depositing $780 per month, but after 60 days you can deposit $2800 per month, so trading as much as possible will be the best thing to do if you want money.
To deposit dollars with (VERIFIED) PayPal to VirWox, you need to be a verified user on PayPal (check their site for more information). This is to prevent frautend actions such as chargebacks and instant payments. The deposit will be instantly made after you complete the order and you can start trade. To trade, you first have to buy SLL (VirWox own currency) with the USD ypu deåpsoted on your account [!!!WARNING!!!] USE LIMIT ORDER and NOT market order.
Now do the same, but with the SLL/BTC exchange. I repeat, do NOT use the market order. Use LIMIT ORDER to get as much BTC as possible.
You have now successfully completed a USD/BTC exchange!
3.2 BTC/DOGE Exchange
This step is almost similar to the previous Exchange, but this step is only with Crypto-currency (read Bitcoin and Dogecoin).
BTC/USD Exchange: Cryptsy
To exchange to BTC, you need to withdraw your BTC from VirWox to Cryptsy. This is made in the Cryptsy balance page, where you can generate a BTC deposit adress. Unfortunately, you have to wait 48 hours the first time for VirWox to accept your withdrawal request manually due to security reasons, all the other transactions in this guide will be almost instant.
Now when you have BTC on your Cryptsy account, you have to do the same as you did with USD/SLL and SLL/BTC, really easy! When you have traded to DOGE, your downloaded Desktop Wallet comes in handy. Deposit the DOGE from Cryptsy to your active Wallet and you're ready to go to the next step!
4. Where to sell Dogecoin?
This is a great surprise I have waited to tell you, you use REDDIT to sell Dogecoin! It's really easy to do. Go to /dogemarket/new and see what the current prices are. You can sell for the same price as others, undercut for faster sales or overcut for slower sales (but bigger profits!). You structure the post by [SERVICE] AMOUNT RATE PAYMENT TYPE (SPECIAL OFFER). Here is an example, my last post where I sold Dogecoin. If you follow my conversation in that post you will see how typical trades are being made.
When you have traded the Doge with another user you can make a post on the /dogemarket verification thread where you achieve levels that will be shown for other users through your flare. Notice the orage flares on the /dogemarket subreddit, those indicate level of trades, age and amount you have traded. These are good for noticing legit and fake users, but always beware of scammers!
5. Advice
A. Only accept GIFT (friends and family option) from (VERIFIED) PayPal, DO NOT accept eChecks or transactions that has to be accepted first. eChecks and Instant payments can be chargebacked and gifts will prevent this from being possible.
B. If you have reached VirWox deposit limit, wait a while to see how the BTC/DOGE and USD/DOGE market is going. You might make some extra Dollars if you wait a while.
C. Always be nice and kind to eachother, we are really friendly, patient and polite!
D. Try to be fast and reliable in your transactions on /dogemarket, good service equals good reviews.
E. PEOPLE WILL TRY TO SCAM YOU! Always check for names including "shibe" or "doge", impersonators and new (0 day old) accounts.
F. Have fun! If you have fun trading and communicating with other people on Reddit, you will enjoy yourself and have a better time making money.
6. Summary: A step by step guide to make $100+/month
(and $500+/month when VirWox account is 60 days old, and $750+/month when your VirWox account is 90 days old, if market remains of course)
Download your dogecoin wallet.
Sign up to PayPal, VirWox and Cryptsy.
Add money to your (VERIFIED) PayPal account.
Deposit the money to VirWox.
Exchange money to SLL.
Exchange SLL to BTC.
Withdraw BTC to Cryptsy.
Exchange BTC to DOGE.
Withdraw DOGE to Desktop Wallet.
Make a post on /dogemarket.
Recieve PayPal money from buyer.
Send Dogecoin to buyer.

This is my first guide: making over $100/month with a $72 investment. When your VirWox account is 60 days you'll make $500/month and when your VirWox account is 90 days you'll make $750/month (if market remains as it is).
I think it's a big effort by me trying to teach you how to make money, so I would really appreciate admiration in the comments. If you find any errors in my guide, please don't hesitate to tell. I will be answering any questions regarding my guide as good as possible doesn't matter if you comment or PM.
Thanks.
TL;DR (18+) Go to point 6 and use the search function if you want to make money

What is the best way to buy bitcoins (for a 15 year old who's parents won't let him spend money on the internet)

I noticed bitcoin when the price was around $50 per bitcoin, and damn am i regretting not buying any then. I saw it, and then asked my parents if i could buy any, to which their answer was no, because they were afraid of buying anything over the internet; I can't use a full fledged credit card. I have tried redeeming a prepaid mastercard debit card with about $9 to test it out (using virwox via skrill), and it won't accept the card (skrill IS giving me reciepts, but not withdrawing any money). My local gas station does sell paysafecard, so that might be an option, and the walmart sells moneypaks. What would be the best way to buy about $150 in bitcoin?

Doge Puppies Like Me: Come hear my tail, such learning, much waiting, yet such sweet Wow.

NOTE: This is a summary of my experience with DOGE buying. I am new to the internet world, very luddite, but hope to learn more. I am sharing my experiences for any others out here like me, who may be just starting out. I am a stay at home mom who browses imgur while nursing, long story short, I stumbled on to the news article about the Jamaican Bobsledders. Then I started my research and last week I jumped on the Dogetrain, all starry eyed and bushy tailed.
I bought my first bitcoin on Virwox using my paypal account. It caps you at $104 USD. You then have to trade your Bitcoin for Linden dollars. Linden is currency from the Second Life, an Avatar game. After you make your linden trade, you can then trade your Linden for BTC. I ended up with around .111BTC, which isn't so great for $104 USD.
I next signed up for an account at Coinbase. At Coinbase I had to enter bank account information, and then I bought BTC. The great thing about Coinbase is that they lock in the market price when you place your order. Even though I haven't actually received my BTC for 4 days (still waiting) I was able to buy it at the low of $781 per BTC. I bought .3 BTC for the price of $237.
The next thing I did was pretty silly. I withdrew my BTC from Wirvox (paying .002 BTC withdraw fee) and transferred it into Coinbase. It took two (2) days for this transfer to take place. Once my BTC finally arrived at Coinbase, I realized I wanted to trade them for DOGE. Coinbase is ONLY for buying and selling Bitcoin. So, I had to transfer my BTC from Coinbase and into Cryptsy. Everytime you make a withdraw from one of these markets, you end up incurring some small fee. But if you are going around needlessly transferring BTC like I was, those fees add up. The transfer from Coinbase to Cryptsy took about a minute. Once at Cryptsy I traded my .111 BTC for around 65,000 DOGE. Next I transferred the DOGE into my Dogewallet that I had downloaded onto my desktop. This transfer took 24 Hrs. It kept saying, "pending" I issued a Cryptsy ticket asking what the hold up was and they responded promptly and fixed the problem by the following day.
I am still waiting for my .3 BTC I bought from Coinbase to stop pending, once it does I will transfer it into Cryptsy and again buy more DOGE.
I downloaded Dogecoin QT wallet for my desktop and transferred my Doge, this took around 12 hrs. The whole time I was stressing not sure what exactly I had downloaded onto my computer (a bug, a bomb?) But I googled and found out from reddit that this is a common issue with Dogecoin QT.
I have also bought 10,000 DOGE on Ebay for $20,000 from a very kind member of the Shibe community who showed me how to find my wallet address, transferred an initial 1 DOGE to make sure it worked, and then welcomed me kindly and gave me an extra 1000.
I also signed up for Doge Vault, and I have tested sending DOGE back and forth between my desktop wallet and the online wallet. The online wallet is faster in my opinion.
TL;DR: Newbie's experience with DOGE, learn from my mistakes.
Community Overlords of DOGE: this might give you an idea of what your average computer idiot goes through when they are starting out.
